Road Trip Day 5–Sertoma Butterfly House

Our last day in South Dakota was a magical one. I say that because we visited the Sertoma Butterfly House in Sioux Falls. Butterfly Houses are wonderful places to visit and Sertoma, with its more than 800 butterflies, is one of the best ones we have ever visited. It is a totally unreal feeling to have all these beautiful insects with their bright colors fluttering around you. If you ever have a chance to visit one of these places you won’t be disappointed.

There is also a nice pond and nature area nearby to explore. For some reason though I tend to attract mosquitoes for a 3 mile range. Peg wasn’t bitten even once while I was eaten alive.

As an added bonus once we left South Dakota we were entertained by some ground squirrels at the rest stop just over the border in Minnesota.
